Visited Chutney after a few years, the place has been updated and the seating area is definitely more attractive. Ordered for take-out - food was delicious and at great prices.

Cheap, and very good. Would've paid more for a lot less elsewhere. Was quite busy and noisy, but that's a testament to the value offered. They don't serve alcohol but there are various minimarts nearby where you can purchase and consume at Chuntey.

I visited Chutney 7 years ago to the month and ended up eating here a few times. I must say that the food was still good on this trip and I would still recommend it. I've definitely had better, but the chicken tikka masala is great. Good blend of spices and medium heat. A little too much tomato flavour in... More

Great south Asian food in a utilitarian setting (paper napkins & Formica, order at the cash register) with no alcohol. Clearly popular (busy by 6:30 on a Wed. night) with a multiethnic crowd. Perfect naan, well-flavored dal, great pickles and other sides. My chicken was a little dry but very tasty, and a mango lassi kept the tastebuds cool. Don't... More

So good we went here twice in our 3 day trip to SF! The tikka masala is so incredible it is beyond words! This restaurant was recommended by our Pakistani uber driver as the best in SF, and after going, I believe him! And apparently that is the general consensus as the place was packed! But we did discover the... More

Due to the rush the tables are never cleaned. And no one really bothers to serve you right. The price per meal is snout 10 to... More
